This blog was put up as a communication platform for the attendees of the ESI data quality conference (March 23-24 2011) aimed at “Re-engineering Data Quality Practices for Change”. It is also open to individuals with a passion for data quality and data use who may not have been able to attend the conference.
The main aim of the conference is to develop a framework for a coherent data quality strategy to strengthen routine government information systems in which data quality activities are based on relevant industry standards, and will serve as a platform to support the newly formed data quality auditing and training accreditation scheme under ISO 8000. Four practical workshops focused on integration and collaborative knowledge sharing will run over the course of the two days.
Conference participants are encouraged to bring any and all individual or organizational instruments/materials/trainings and/or relevant information to actively share in each of the four technical workshops: standards and measurement; tools/methodologies; data use/dissemination; and quality improvement initiatives.
This blog was set up to encourage further conversation between attendees and non-attendees that have acquired an interest in the topics discussed during the conference.
